The Future of Cochineal Cultivation


What is Cultured Bugs™

Cultured Bugs™ is a process of cultivating cochineal insects. This process, currently protected by 6 patents with more pending, is a biochemical innovation that was long considered impossible. Cultured Bugs™ results in the production of carminic acid that is chemically identical to traditional production methods while eliminating the cactus, and its associated issues, altogether. Better yet, the process is all-natural and non-GMO. Cultured Bugs™ is the future of cochineal and with that, the future of the color red.
